WHAT IS HAPTIC LAB?
”The word haptic means relating to the sense of touch. When my mother began losing her sight, I realized how the visual sense can be valued above others. So at Haptic Lab, we create products that look great but also appeal to a broader sensory experience.”
“I love how holding the tether as it rises gives the sensation of flight. It’s such a thrilling experience.
And designing anything to fly is a challenge that I find very interesting.”
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
“After working as an architect in NYC, I entered a kitemaking competition in 2009 and won second place.”
WHAT ELSE DO YOU MAKE?
”We’re also known for our quilts.” The modern hand-stitched quilts are like soft maps of major cities, coastlines, and constellations.
